“It is through self awareness that you’re able to enhance, modify and change” – Sugey Gomez
Anytime Sport Psychology is mentioned, young athletes mostly get confused and scared. Growing up as a young athlete myself all i knew was that psychology had to do with the mind. I didn’t want to know more. I wanted to only focus on the physical.
At some point in an athlete’s career you want to take things to the next level.
You want to get clearer with the role your mind plays in your career and how to fully tap into that power.
On this episode of the podcast I was absolutely thrilled to have Sugey Gomez on to share her knowledge with us.
For those of you who have been longtime listeners of the podcast, you’ll know that I don’t have many guest on. Not because i think i know it all but because i only want to bring people on that i’ll be excited to learn from myself and i know they’ll greatly benefit you.
Sugey is a sport psychology student and we talk all things mental aspects of sports. What makes this conversation more fascinating is the fact that Sugey is currently undergoing her Masters in Sports Psychology at JFK.
We break things down into the most simplest form for you to understand. Whatever question you’ve had about the mental game i’m sure we talk about it today.
If for any reason we didn’t discuss something you wanted us to talk about send me a mail, email@example.com.
I did say i was going to get her to speak spanish on the podcast but i forgot, that’s definitely a reason to bring her back on the show. But for now enjoy this episode with Sugey Gomez.
Remember, knowing is not enough you must apply, willing is not enough you must do.
